"Ernesto "Che" Guevara was born in Argentina on June 14, 1928. After graduating from medical school in 1953, he set off to travel the Americas. While living in Guatemala in 1954, he became involved in political struggle, supporting the elected government of Jacobo Arbenz against the CIA's eventually successful attempts to overthrow it. He then escaped to Mexico, where he soon joined Fidel Castro and other Cuban revolutionaries of the July 26 Movement seeking to overthrow dictator Fulgencio Batista." "In December 1956 Guevara was part of the expedition that landed in Cuba aboard the yacht Granma to begin the guerrilla struggle. Originally the troop doctor, Guevara became a commander of the Rebel Army." "Following Batista's fall on January 1, 1959, Guevara became one of the central leaders of the new workers and farmers government. He held a number of posts, including president of the National Bank and minister of industry, and frequently represented Cuba internationally, including at the United Nations and in other world forums. As a leader of the July 26 Movement, he helped bring about the political regroupment that led to the founding of the Communist Party of Cuba in October 1965." "Guevara resigned his government posts and responsibilities in early 1965 and left Cuba in order to return to South America to help advance the anti-imperialist and anticapitalist struggles that were sharpening in several countries. Along with a number of volunteers who would later join him in Bolivia, Guevara went first to the Congo (later Zaire) where he aided the anti-imperialist movement founded by Patrice Lumumba. From November 1966 to October 1967 he led a guerrilla movement in Bolivia against that country's military dictatorship. Wounded and captured by the Bolivian army in a CIA-organized operation on October 8, 1967, he was murdered the following day."--Jacket

Fertile ground : Che Guevara and Bolivia : a firsthand account by Rodolfo Saldaña ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959 was part of a rising wave of anti-imperialist struggle throughout Latin America. Proving "that revolution is possible," the Cuban people and their leadership set an example that accelerated already unfolding battles for land, labor, and national sovereignty across the continent." "Rodolfo Saldana was one of the Bolivians who joined ranks in 1966-77 with Ernesto Che Guevara to forge a revolutionary movement of workers, peasants, and young people to overturn the military dictatorship in Bolivia and open the road to socialist revolution in South America. Here, Saldana talks about the unresolved battles of the tin miners, peasants, and indigenous peoples of his country that created "fertile ground" for Guevara's revolutionary course and marked out the future of Bolivia and the Americas."--BOOK JACKET
Malcolm X, Black liberation & the road to workers power by Jack Barnes ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The foundations for the explosive rise of the Black liberation struggle in the U.S. beginning in the mid-1950s were laid by the massive migration of Blacks from the rural South to cities and factories across the continent, drawn by capital's insatiable need for labor powerand cannon fodder for its wars. Malcolm X emerged from this rising struggle as its outstanding single leader. He insisted that colossal movement was part of a worldwide revolutionary battle for human rights. A clash between those who want freedom, justice, and equality and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation. Drawing lessons from a century and a half of struggle, this book helps us understand why it is the revolutionary conquest of power by the working class that will make possible the final battle for Black freedomand open the way to a world based not on exploitation, violence, and racism, but human solidarity.

Women in Cuba : the making of a revolution within the revolution by Vilma Espín Guillois ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The social revolution that in 1959 brought down the bloody Batista dictatorship began in the streets of cities like Santiago de Cuba and the Rebel Army's liberated mountain zones of eastern Cuba. The unprecedented integration of women in the ranks and leadership of this struggle was a true measure of the revolutionary course it has followed to this day. Here, in firsthand accounts by women who helped make it, is the story of that revolution--and 'the revolution within.-- Publisher information

From the Escambray to the Congo : in the whirlwind of the Cuban Revolution : interview with Víctor Dreke by Víctor Dreke ( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his account of how easy it became after the 1959 victory of the Cuban Revolution to "take down the rope" that for decades had segregated blacks from whites at dances in town squares, yet how enormous was the battle to transform the social relations underlying this and all the other "ropes" inherited from colonialism, capitalism, and Yankee domination - Victor Dreke captures the historical challenge of our epoch. At the heart of this book lies the willingness, determination, and creative joy with which Cuba's working people have, for more than forty years, defended their revolutionary course against the imperialist empire to the north." "Victor Dreke has been a leading participant in Cuba's revolutionary movement for half a century as a high school student activist, cadre of the July 26 Movement and then the March 13 Revolutionary Directorate, Rebel Army fighter, a commander of the volunteer battalions that defeated the counterrevolutionary bands in the Escambray mountains of central Cuba, internationalist combatant at the side of Che Guevara in the Congo, political leader, educator, and representative of the Cuban Revolution throughout Africa."--BOOK JACKET

Cuba & Angola : fighting for Africa's freedom and our own by Fidel Castro ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Twenty-five years ago, in March 1988, the army of South Africa's apartheid regime was dealt a crushing defeat by Cuban, Angolan, and Namibian combatants at the battle of Cuito Cuanavale in Angola. That triumph, South Africa's future president Nelson Mandela proclaimed, marked 'a milestone in the history of the struggle for southern African liberation.' With the victory at Cuito Cuanavale, Angola's sovereignty was secured. Namibia's independence was won. The deepening revolutionary struggle in South Africa received a powerful boost. And the Cuban Revolution too was strengthened. Between 1975 and 1991 some 425,000 Cubans volunteered for duty in Angola in response to requests from the Angolan government to help defend the newly independent country against multiple invasions by South Africa's white-supremacist regime, backed by its allies in Washington and elsewhere. Here this history is told by those who lived it and made it"--Page 4 of cover
Cuba and the coming American Revolution by Jack Barnes ( Book )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cuba and the Coming American Revolution is about the struggles of working people in the imperialist heartland, the youth who are attracted to them, and the example set by the people of Cuba that revolution is not only necessary - it can be made. It is about the class struggle in the United States, where the revolutionary capacities of workers and farmers are today as utterly discounted by the ruling powers as were those of the Cuban toilers. And just as wrongly."--BOOK JACKET
